Entropolis is an education technology business established in 2015 and based in the heart of Sydney. We offer a portfolio of online education programs and engaging real-world experiences for 10 – 25 year olds, teaching them to think, act and create like entrepreneurs.
There are more than 1.5 billion young people between the ages of 10 and 25 in the world today, the largest cohort in history. Some reports estimate that up to 60% of these kids are not acquiring the 21st century education or skills they need to successfully transition to the workforce or build livelihoods as adults.
We work alongside the education sector and parents, providing high quality, teaching and learning resources for 10 – 25 year olds, that augment formal curriculum and help train the next generation to be innovators and entrepreneurial thinkers, not just entrepreneurs.
Global research has been identified entrepreneurship as one of the most powerful contextual, experiential learning frameworks for developing innovation capability; a growth mindset; creativity and critical thinking; financial and digital literacy; and other critical workforce skills kids are going to need to be adaptable, employable and competitive in the future.
In 2014 we started developing our programs to fulfill the emerging need for a considered pathway approach to developing 21st Century skills from an early stage. We saw an opportunity to combine our rich entrepreneurial experience and deep network connections with strong education partnerships to add value to what is already being taught in schools.
Making Entrepreneurship accessible to all kids …
Since 2015 we’ve engaged almost 20,000 young people across more than 800 diverse schools and communities in Australia and New Zealand and are poised to deliver more scale and impact across Asia Pacific and beyond with the launch of our new online primary and high school programs, incursions and other higher level learning experiences.
The Power of Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship is a powerful, experiential way to give young people top new work skills for the future
Entrepreneurs are brilliant! They’re on a mission to innovate, invent and commercialise great ideas to make our world better, more fun and a whole lot easier. There are ‘Unicorns’ (i.e. entrepreneurs with $billion+ businesses) out there but entrepreneurs are not mythical beasts and they don’t have super powers … as far as we know anyway!
Like a talented musician or sportsperson, some people are just born with a powerful entrepreneurial mindset and strong natural motivation to solve problems and pursue new ideas. But we believe entrepreneurship is a fundamental part of human DNA and, with the right resources and support, anyone can be trained and developed over time to be effective entrepreneurial thinkers and creators.
Training our kids to think, act and create like entrepreneurs will give them great skills for the future regardless of what they decide to do. Not only will they be futureproof, but the world will get the future thinkers, innovators and leaders it really needs to shape the future for all of us.
